How many beans does it cost to go to the City Museum? I LOVE that place.

Seriously- this is a great idea!

this is such a great idea! Visuals are everything for my kids, they would love this idea.


I love your chart..."read scriptures" got me all teary eyed. I'm anxious to hear how he does with the beans and you totally have the right earn priveleges and not just stuff:):)


wow what an amazingly good idea! Some many great lessons with one simple and free trick. Love it!


I love the bean idea, so much better than an allowance.



My friend Jennifer just started something like this with her kids yesterday. Once the marbles get to a certain point on the jar, they get a reward...going bowling, spending extra time at the park, flying a kite, etc. Great idea!
